I think they are connecting a motor to the price per litre display at our local servo and have a speed controller on it so that it just slowly turns like an odometer....to save them changing it...LOL :)

C'mon it's $1.80 in suburban Melbourne so $2.00 or so does not sound too bad for for "remote" areas.

Just as I thought, they have just received a new fuel delivery. If the servo doesn't sell a lot of fuel there is a considerable lag time, up and down, in the price. Expect the big cities and transport outlets to see declining prices in the next 10 days or so....

I keep reading people saying "you can't complain, cos look at what we're paying" yes it's cheapER in some places and more expensive in other places, I still wouldn't call it "cheap", except in places like The Middle East and Venezuela.

I may be dumb, but can someone answer a question for me. Diesel is approximately thirty cents a litre dearer than unleaded. I understand that China and India in particular, are using and possibly storing large amounts of Diesel for manufacturing purposes. I understand the principles of supply and demand. However, from my understanding, we don't buy diesel from other counties, we buy oil from overseas. We have refineries in Australia to convert the oil to fuel and diesel is known to be far cheaper to refine than unleaded. Why does the demand for diesel overseas reflected at our pumps. Do we export diesel to the likes of China and India? I would have though both of those countries had their own refineries. Do our refiners see the demand for diesel overseas and simply gouge us at the pumps.

"Why does the demand for diesel overseas reflected at our pumps. Do we export diesel to the likes of China and India? I would have though both of those countries had their own refineries."
We probably do then buy it back at a dearer price like everything else we get, make it here send over seas then buy it back with an import tax on it. Makes a lot of sense eh !!! Bunch of wankers the whole government, screwing us bit by bit. They wouldn't know if a bus was up em unless the passengers got out !!! Noticed on the news last night that alot of people didnt go away as they couldnt afford the fuel and a lot of motels, caravan parks etc were saying they still had heaps of vacancies. More of it to come yet thats for sure. The great Australian dream becoming more a nightmare for some. Most of the government wouldnt have a clue what its like to live on an average wage and have to put their hand in THEIR pocket not owes to fill up or buy fruit and veg Pack of a s s holes. My whinge for the day. Have a good one. Regards Steve M

My predicition is at least $3.00 per litre before the end of the year at which time I suggest we might start to see some pretty serious 'demonstrations' in the streets - against the Govt. and their reluctance to offer any for of excise/GST reduction. It's already starting to happen throughout parts of Europe.
